Hot Air Balloons in the Clouds: Dubai, UAE

Amazing, magical, dreamlike photo of hot air balloons (taken from a hot air balloon) in Dubai, UAE.

“The silence was all I could think about, broken by the roar of the flame every few minutes. Drifting through the sky without sound was surreal and peaceful … something I’ve never experienced before.”

Dreamy Sunrise Over Bagan w/ Hot Air Balloons

Sunrise Over Bagan – Hard to believe that this dream-like, Zen photo was taken on Earth, but in fact it was taken of the city of Bagan (formerly “Pagan”) in Burma. (Myanmar) Looking like a foggy scene from another world, hot air balloons float over the city’s landscape of Buddhist temples.

Did you know that during the height of Bagan’s prosperity, (1044-1287) over 10,000 religious monuments and temples were built in an area of only 100 square kilometers?

While most of these early temples didn’t survive, you can see some of the remaining 2229 temples & pagodas in this gorgeous & inspiring Instagram photo with incredible depth and balance.
